GA intervenes to lift road blockade

[TamilNet, Saturday, 29 November 1997, 23:59 GMT]
Security in Jaffna town was tightened up further as the army banned vehicles from the Kandy road between Maambalachchanthi in Ariyalai and the Kachcheri since Wednesday.

Several other entry points were also closed until today.

Large vehicles in particular were denied entry at these road blocks.

The Jaffna Government Agent took up the matter with SLA's Brigadier Tilakaratne, who is in charge of civil administration affairs in the peninsula yesterday.

The road blocks were removed this afternoon as a consequence, said Jaffna Kachcheri sources.
